So, I had some spots of tough algae on the glass and my scraper wasn't up to the task.

I ordered this:

Immediately realized the blades were too flimsy. But, it's stainless steel and easy enough to maneuver. The thought occurred to try a utility knife blade and it worked perfectly! They rust like crazy so I am ordering some stainless versions of them.

Very happy.
If ur working with glass, nothing beats a razor blade. Just be sure u cleanse them cuz they come with a preservative layer of oil from the machining etc..

I used dawn to remove the grease, rinse well and then rubbing alcohol just in case. I will do the same with the stainless ones coming in tomorrow.

I agree that a razor blade is way better than anything else on glass.

This is number 3 for me. No I don’t do her nails she pays for that. She wouldn’t watch me bleed out because that’s too messy.

Lol!
See @crusso1993. #3 really is the magic number.

Or as I told a 20+ year coworker last year.
"You better be nice to that girl! You're too old to go looking for #4 and I'm too old to help you move out again."

There may be something to this. I'm my wife's 3rd husband even if it is my first marriage. Couldn't imagine it being any better and we are about to hit our 14th anniversary.

Does it make me a bad person if I am grateful she had to deal with the 2 previous bad marriages so I could benefit? :confused:
